‘Maintenance free’, Stylish, Hardwearing …
Castlegate Home Improvements will build your deck with quality workmanship and the best material suited for your home, lifestyle and budget. Composite decking comes in a variety of colours to suit any home or business. With our 20 year warranty you can’t go wrong.
Composite is a complete product. Once installed, you never need to oil or sand it and it doesn’t require painting. Composite is a little more costly than hardwood, however you get this back in saving on maintenance materials and your valuable time.
You also receive a 20-year written warranty for your composite deck once built. While Castlegate Home Improvements certainly guarantees our work and provides a 12 month decking follow up service, timber is a natural product and it will only retain its healthy condition with regular upkeep.
What is composite decking?
- Composite decking is an eco-friendly combination of recycled timber and recycled plastics
- Some decking brands are a combination of recycled timber, plastic and sawdust
- You never need to oil, paint or sand your composite deck. An occasional wash down with a gentle soap and warm water is all it needs
- It is termite and white ant proof
- The boards do not shrink, warp, fade, rot or splinter
- The boards are fixed with stainless steel hidden fasteners so you wont have screws popping up and no nasty accidents
Castlegate Home Improvements are not affiliated with any particular brand of decking boards. However, we do recommend that you choose the best board you can afford, even if you need to save for a little longer; it’s worth it.
Look for a brand that offers a good warranty. Are they local, and so easily contactable? How long has the company been in business? and where can I see examples of their product?
Your deck is an investment, and a feature your friends and family will enjoy with you so we recommend choosing a quality board with a good warranty and a good reputation.
